Rob Gronkowski’s Mom Says He’s Dying to Play

NFL: New England Patriots-Training Camp

Rob Gronkowski is missing his sixth game of the season today and there have been lots of reports about his status effecting the team. We know his dad came out and spoke about Gronks situation before and now its time for his mom to speak up:

“All I can say is Robbie is dying to play. He wants to get out there,” Diane Gronkowski told The Boston Herald. “He’s doing what he has to do to get back playing. He doesn’t like it. He wants to play. It really bothers him that he’s not playing.”

This has become a weird situation. From the start of the season week 2 is when it looked like Gronk would come back and it just keeps getting delayed. Should he stay out until he feels 100% ready like Derrick Rose or is he really just not healthy enough which is why Dr. James Andrews won’t clear him to play?

Either way, Gronk should politely ask his parents to stop speaking about this.
